Earlier, I talked about pigeon poop and the big bang that inflated our universe. I left off with the question what actually caused inflation that expanded our universe? Well, here’s one idea from my sci-fi book “Heaven’s Ant Farm” that explains the whole thing.
In Heaven, Yahweh and his follow scientists tinker with a stillborn universe they’ve discovered. It’s just two inches in diameter and located one thousandth of an inch away from them but along a fifth dimension of hyperspace that was, up till now, inaccessible. Through a wormhole maintained by an antimatter accelerator called the “Pearly Gates,” Yahweh and the others can see through the hyperspace that separates their two universes. A mega-sized and temperamental electrical converter nicknamed “the beast” powers the Pearly Gates.
On the First Day in the life of the new universe, Yahweh works his fingers across the antimatter accelerator’s holographic console to waken the beast within the Pearly Gates. As the 900 gigavolt converter roars to life, Yahweh wonders if Raphael did the calculations carefully this time, or did he guess like before when he almost lost control of this beast. Too late now. Yahweh’s lips tighten in consignment as the rampant converter focuses an electromagnetic field to propel charged matter then antimatter particles through hyperspace and into the new universe. The scientists watch the holoviewer’s image of the two diametric substances as they drift together.
Then a silent green and blue flash announces the matter-antimatter detonation inside the new universe. At the same instant, the size of the baby universe swells out at over a 100 times the speed of light. As if slapped on the behind, it comes to life.
Ramiel reads the latest telemetry data. His eyes inflate almost as fast as the new universe. “It is now over fifty thousand light years across and still growing…fast! It’s going to collide into our own universe!”
“Maybe we should not have done this. This is what we get for trying to act like a god!” pouts Xaphan.
Dean Superior Harahel’s eyes roll. “Let’s leave god out of this. This is not an ekpyrotic event where universe membranes collide. Remember, it’s expanding in its own three dimensions, not ours.”
“It’s actually moving away from us—probably the momentum from when it shot out of our universe,” Yahweh pounders aloud.
Then Gabrielle calls out, “look, electrons and protons have formed in the baby universe.”
Raphael joins the chorus. “And it’s not stopping there. Hydrogen atoms are forming.”
During the next several hours, the scientists watch the holographic images of hydrogen atoms as they form, dance then gravitate into a large thick cloud.
“Wow, look at that!” Xaphan tells the others as the hydrogen cloud bursts into a giant star. It burns bright yellow for a while then flashes white into a nova that hurls its fiery innards across a still inflating baby universe.
Light from the short lived star warms Yahweh’s insides as he reflects on what happened. In just a few hours, they created a new universe in another dimension then created matter out of nothing. Then to top it all off, the new universe seems to obey the same laws of physics which enabled them to turn on the first light there.
“This is good!” Yahweh tells the others.
Not exactly what you read in the bible, eh? Feel free to comment!
